The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, as said that the  new national minimum wage will be announced in September.

Daily Post reported that the SGF stated that the New minimum wage would address the prevailing harsh economic reality among Nigerians. He made this known at an award event to round up the 40th anniversary of the Nigeria Labour Congress in Abuja on Thursday.

Naija News confirmed that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation pointed out that Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) as the soul of the government, adding that because of the importance the government attached to the welfare of workers, it was making a lot of efforts to resuscitate the economy.

 “The importance of the Nigeria Labour Congress in the affairs of any government cannot be overlooked. It is the soul of the government because without the workers, be they civil servants, private sector workers or even pensioners, there will be nobody to man the system.”

“That is why this administration takes the welfare of the Nigerian worker as priority by putting so much effort into the resuscitation of the economy. I must underscore the fact that the primary objective of the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan is to diversity the economy, grow skills, create wealth, gain infrastructures, ensure food security and provide jobs.” He said.

Naija News gathered that the event honoured prominent Nigerians, such as  late Chief Gani Fawehinmi, late Pa Micheal Imoudu, late Olaitan Oyelunde, late Chiba Ubani, late Prof, Festus Iyayi, as well as past Presidents and General Secretaries of the congress and others, for their contribution to the nation’s development and the Labour movement in Nigeria and inducted into Labour Hall of Fame
